My gf just got the Madisons and loves them.

Other than that Im a total Rome slut and a customer for life. Their customer service has treated me like a king every single time.

The Rome Madison is a pretty heavy binding. It seems to me that most, if not all, of the Rome bindings are made out of pretty heavy materials... sure looks like metal to me, but maybe it's some composite metal look-a-feel-a-like.

I swear my wife's Rome Lo-Fi 147 w/Rome Madison bindings is heavier than my Arbor Westmark 159 w/Flux Super Titan bindings.

yes it does seem a bit heavy.. it's said to be around 4.3lbs.. the ride zeta's are definately lighter and seem less bulky too.. but i wonder if they work as good as the madison's...

Per Rome's site, the bindings go up to size 11 which implies more than one size (at least I think it does).

Have you considered picking up a men's equivalent of the Madison's which I think would be the 390s?

a shop assistant told me they only made it in one size (recommended for 5.5 to 11 according to website). Too bad i wear a size 5 boot. I just manage to fill it out.. that's why i'm considering the zeta's instead and hoping they will fit better.

wow you have a tiny foot!

I'm pretty sure they come in sizes, so if you're just barely managing to get your foot in, that might be a medium

Try looking at other bindings and just trying them on to see if there is anything smaller than what the guy is giving you

You've been misinformed. They come in at least two sizes. I'd start shopping online and stay out of the local shops.
